Tyngsborough, MA (PRWEB) June 22, 2015
Balefire Labs, Inc (http://www.BalefireLabs.com) -- provider of free educational app reviews for teachers and parents-- announced today that its online service has expanded to include reviews of kids' puzzler games and serious games for PreK-12.
"Puzzler games and serious games are the two fastest growing categories of kids' apps that we are seeing in the marketplace." said Karen L. Mahon, Ed.D., President and Founder of Balefire Labs. "Now, in addition to searching for apps by academic subject, users can also search for puzzlers and serious games as well. Searching by category can be supplemented by searching by age and mobile operating system as well."
By simply registering for an account, anyone can access all of Balefire Labs' more than 4,300 reviews of educational apps, including more than 400 puzzler and serious games. "Unlike many of the apps we review that target core academic subjects, puzzler and serious games tend to focus on applying problem solving and critical thinking skills to expand on basic skills," explains Mahon. "We think providing reviews of these games will help teachers and parents further develop the competencies of kids."
Since its inception in 2013, Balefire Labs has acquired a reputation for conducting the most rigorous evaluations of educational app quality in the market today. Last year, Balefire Labs was name the Best New EdTech Product or Service of 2014 by EdTech Digest. A minimum of 100 new reviews are added to the site each month.
Having moved to a no-charge model six months ago, Balefire Labs will be adding advertising to its website in the coming months. In addition to its educational app review service, Balefire Labs offers paid services to developers, including detailed pre- and in-market app evaluations, competitive analysis services, and instructional design consulting. There is no fee for conducting and publishing standard app reviews.
